Reflection Questions

After reading through this section, take a moment to think about how accessibility plays into your own work in scholarly communication. If you’re having a hard time getting started, you might take the following questions as a starting point:


  • How does accessibility intersect with conversations about open access? Authors’ rights? Open licenses? Intellectual property?


  • How could accessibility requirements be incorporated into programs often administered by scholarly communication librarians? For instance, if you manage a subvention fund for article processing charges, how could you use these funds to encourage greater accessibility?


  • How might accessibility work be introduced in the context of open pedagogy? How might we introduce students to these concepts and engage them as partners in the work?


  • How can scholarly communication librarians center accessibility in discussions of information ecosystems?


  • How can we deploy/support more accessible systems, tools, and technologies in the course of our work?
